I has been suggested that backporting bugfix patches from current 3.x to 
2.7 will make it easier to port from the atest 2.7.x to 3.x. I have no 
idea how true that is.

An exception is Idle, where the workaround is to grit one teeth and 
perhaps yell 'Idle is broken' or to switch to something else. With 
PEP343 accepted, this is rapidly being worked on. NEWS for 2.7.5 already 
has 8 Idle items. Most of the credit goes to Roger Serwy.
